Memorial service planned for Missouri boating accident victims
BRANSON (AP) — A memorial service is scheduled for the people killed when a tourist boat sank in a Missouri lake.
The service will be held Sunday afternoon at the College of the Ozarks, near Table Rock Lake, where the duck boat sank Thursday, killing 17 people. The accident happened as winds approached hurricane strength.
Nine of the people who died were part of one Indiana family. Online fundraisers have raised nearly $400,000 for their funeral expenses.
Two GoFundMe campaigns are underway for the Coleman family, who lost three generations in the duck boat accident.
Others killed were from Missouri, Arkansas and Illinois.
